The week in re(ar)view
Who says idleness cannot be a fruitful amount of (non)activity. We are always idle and look what we come up with. Ever wonder what's a “trumour”? It's a rumour that is true but everyone pretends it is not. You learn something everyday.
What goes up must continue upward
Teaching kids not to be kids
We love holidays
By Gokhra and Mood Dude
Apparently, due to an overload of visitors (especially a few “obnoxious polapain” as per the Bashundhara officials) to the Bashundhara Baluchor, the area has been recently blocked to visitors. This new off-limit to one of the prime 'romantic' spots in Dhaka has come as a great and bitter disappointment to all, especially its regular visitors mainly comprised of adventure lovers and love birds.
On inquiring one of the workers there, he said, “It is good that the area is now blocked off. This is a very dangerous area especially at night, although thanks to the RAB and Bashundhara guards, there are very few to no cases of thievery or other sort of 'bad things' in this area. Nonetheless, this new rule also lets us workers work in peace. However, seeing all those jolly kopoth kopothies around while working did make my heart happy, and I do feel sad for them. After all, there are very few places like this in Dhaka.”
Very true indeed, there are very few places like this in Dhaka; so peaceful and serene. I do wonder how long they are going to keep this off-limit for visitors, or whether this is the end to this tourist spot. However, we Bengalis can never be shackled down. If there is a will, there is a way! Therefore, if you are ready to walk more than usual, you can still visit this wonderful beauty of nature. Just remember to follow the mud-laid path on the left of all roads!
